Not sure if this is limited to Lumia 920s or all of Windows Phone 8, but I only get voicemail notifications if my data connection is on. I feel like this is a trade-off to having visual voicemail. Very weird. Anyone else have this?

I used to have my data off all the time and still get notifications about voicemail. That's a service you get regardless if data is on or not like still being able to get calls and text messages. At&t doesn't charge extra for visual voicemail. You just have to call them to get it activated on your line.

I am finding alot of things don't work without data, like MMS for example. I am in Russia right now and have received many phone calls but no notification. MMS simply won't send. Not even on WiFi. AT&T told me international data roaming needed to be enabled.

MMS nor VVM will work without a data connection, as VVM downloads the message to your phone. That said, a WiFi connection should be sufficient for VVM. MMS is cellular data only, as the gateways for MMS are only visible to your phone via the cellular network.

Yes, it seems i get the missed call notification, but the toast notification for a VM is absent until i turn it back on. I mean, couldn't it at least tell me, so i can call my VM number if i wanted?

Too bad it works this way. They advertise pre-paid MMS packages for roaming that don't work as advertised. They have a nice scam going on these packages, selling you something that doesn't work. Hopefully they will give me a refund.
